Dani Alves' agent Dinorah Santa Ana has once again claimed the Barcelona right-back is open to leave the Camp Nou in the summer amid reports claiming both Manchester United and Liverpool are closely monitoring the situation.

The 31-year-old defender's future at the Spanish giants has been under scrutiny since last summer when the club put him on the market.

As manager Luis Enrique's Barcelona side failed to sign Fiorentina star Juan Cuadrado to replace him, the Catalans kept Alves in the squad and the right-back has managed to hold on to his place in the line-up.

But with his contract set to expire this summer and the club yet to offer him a renewal, he is expected to put an end to his career in La Liga.

However, Alves' agent has confirmed he is yet to decide his future.

"Dani has not proposed that he wants to continue at Barça or that he wants to leave. He is open to both things," she said.

Meanwhile, Sana Ana said the player will not be influenced by Barcelona's Fifa player-signing ban while making his decision.

She said: "We are not thinking that he has to take this decision based on the fact Barça are unable to sign players until next January. That's for Barça to think about. If there is an offer, two or three of us will sit down, talk about it and then decide."

Earlier this season, Alves claimed during an interview with Brazilian newspaper O Globo that he will be leaving La Liga for the Premier League in 2015.

"This will be my last season at Barça," he said. "Next year I'm moving to England. I want to play in the birthplace of football."

Even though Alves refused to confirm his destination, United and Liverpool have since been linked with his services.

United manager Louis van Gaal has been looking for a back-up for Rafael since last summer and, while recent reports claimed Everton are unlikely to negotiate for first-choice Seamus Coleman, they may consider Alves a more affordable choice.

Meanwhile, Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers signed Javier Manquillo last summer on loan from Atletico Madrid for two seasons but both Jon Flanagan and Glen Johnson are in the final months of their Anfield contracts.
